The inaugural OVO Hackathon

In November 2014, a group of OVO staff took time out of their busy schedules to take part in our first ever hackathon.

Our OVO hackathon started at 10am on a Friday, upon which the dedicated teams of technical and non-technical staff alike were locked away to come up with their ideas. We provided them with much needed fuel - pizza, Red Bull, Coca-Cola, snacks and beer - to help them get through the night as their ideas were transformed from thought to reality, until they emerged, bleary eyed, at 10am on Saturday. After some much needed rest over the weekend, they then presented their creations to a very impressed office on Monday.

We’re still young, which means we’re constantly trying to evolve to be the best company we can be. The only way we’re going to do this is by giving our creative and talented employees the freedom to express themselves: to improvise and innovate and be given the chance to create something interesting outside of the parameters of the usual nine to five. Some of the projects that are developed during these hackathons might go on to help us run our business better. Others will simply help make it a more fun place to be.
